skiintling
 n.Note: According to the Oxford English Dictionary, skintling is “to separate and reset (half-dried bricks) at angles to each other, so as to complete the drying.” «The brick facade is as curious as anything. It’s a technique called “skintling,” but it looks like the bricklayer was hitting the sauce while he worked.» —“Storybook Style” by Sara Anne Corrigan Evansville Courier & Press (Indiana) Jan. 20, 2008.
